University of Edinburgh

Edinburgh University Library came into being in 1580 with a bequest of books from scholar and advocate Clement Litill. We now have some 35 kilometres of Special Collections material, including fine collections of medieval and oriental manuscripts, rich literary and historical archives, and strong holdings of scientific and medical material. There are some 400,000 early and rare printed books including nearly 300 incunabula and the personal libraries of notable individuals such as Adam Smith and Hugh MacDiarmid. The collection includes many unique and internationally-important items, among them the Celtic Psalter, possibly the oldest surviving Scottish book still in Scotland, and several very rare Shakespeare quartos.
